Nerija Kupryte Hopkins was born in Lithuania. As a child working on her family farm, Nerija learned the art of beekeeping. Settling in Rochester, MA in 2003, Nerija began with a couple of beehives for her enjoyment. Now, in 2020, Nerija has over forty beehives. She supplies beehives to Rochester cranberry bog owners. Her bees provide local honey to hundreds of customers. It is Nerija's passion for the bees that we all are grateful and share in the bounty it generates.
